[Special Feature with Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts]
Four Seasons Koh Samui, Thailand
“We’ve never had anyone say ‘no’ to the question ‘will you marry me?’ at our Resort – there must be something in the air,” smiles Worawan Grongthong, Conference Services Manager, Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui.
That kind of reputation sure calls for a romantic dinner on the beach this Valentine’s Day, toes tucked into the sand, the crashing waves providing a perfect harmony for the live saxophonist. Limited to a maximum of 10 couples to ensure complete privacy, this soiree at the Beach House is priced at THB 15,000 plus applicable taxes per couple – priceless for those who count on memories to cherish.
Romantic Sunset Cruise on the Siam Seas
Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui’s private yacht, Siam Seas, will be offering a truly memorable experience to lovebirds – a sunset cruise with canapes and champagne. The romantic Sunset Cruise on Siam Seas is priced at USD 882*
Have a Major Affair onboard Minor Affair
For a truly Extraordinary Experience, couples can choose to discover the unspoiled beauty of Thailand’s Angthong National Marine Park from the unique vantage point of the Four Seasons luxury yacht, Minor Affair. Launched from Four Seasons Resort Koh Samui, the overnight private charter cruises the park’s rainforest-fringed islands, stopping along the way for you to snorkel among the parrotfish, stingrays and colourful coral or simply swim in the park’s turquoise waters.
Back on board, lunch is prepared by the private Four Seasons chef on the spacious sundeck, while surrounded by pristine scenery. In the evening, tropical cocktails are served against the backdrop of a sunset from a private beach, where guests are treated to a Four Seasons chef-prepared barbecue and bonfire. Stargazing in seclusion on deck is a must before retiring to one of the boat’s luxurious staterooms.
For a breathtaking sunrise, the dawn-break excursion to Emerald Lake is a must-do. For those who prefer to sleep in, try a leisurely hike through the jungle with a picnic breakfast, either on board or on the beach, followed by a few more hours in the hidden aquatic playground.
The Extraordinary Experience on Minor Affair is priced at USD 8,800*

Four Seasons Chiang Mai
At Four Seasons Resort Chiang Mai, the private dining experience offers the luxury of a dinner-for-two at the beautiful Orchid Nursery, decorated to suit the mood. Sasinipa Duangsuwan, the Resort’s Conference Services Manager, believes the experience is unmatched. “We have guests who have tied the knot here or have proposed marriage, who come back to celebrate their anniversaries and personal milestones with us. They often want the same experience because we have been able to create such a lasting impression.”
The farm-to-table menu for this occasion has been designed by Thai specialty Chef Anchalee Luadkham from the newly-launched KHAO by Four Seasons, and promises a generous array of aphrodisiacs including caviar, affineur cheeses and Champagne. Valued at THB 59,000 plus applicable taxes per person, Cupid will be strumming a chord or two along with the live musicians at the venue to make for an affair to remember.
